9 April 2016. A Tale of Two Corpses on Life Support… When Shall They Breathe Their Last?

01 brain dead

______________________________

Things are quiet now … the Ukraine is simply decaying and rotting from within. The army is unfit for anything … the power plants are shutting down … the shops are empty … everyone blames the Uniates and Anglos. The Americans fucked up in a major way… we should lay back on this one and let it develop. It’s like the OCA story… the Syosset apparat is flying apart before our eyes. Yes… something’s happening… shall we have victory this Easter? Shall Syosset and SVS jump for the Phanar (the parishes are another story altogether… a fact that the apparatchiks forgot)? One can only speculate.. but it hasn’t resulted in a real breakdown yet. We have to let these stories develop. It’s why I’m not writing about it or the OCA meltdown… they’re works-in-progress, and highly volatile. That is, both the OCA and the “Ukraine” are heading for the dustbin, but the details are unknown; they’re still hanging on, although the subject is clinically brain-dead in both cases.

Let’s not embarrass ourselves like “Hank Leaf” did on the Orthodox Forum. He wrote that Paffso was pro-Centre! He did! Paffso is a drooling neocon extremist allied with the Blunder, Potapov, and Shevkunov, not the actual power apparat at the Centre. If you remember, when Fatso went to the MDA, the rector refused to meet with him, but did meet with Mollard when Mollard came. The coverage of Paffso on patriarchia.ru was always restrained, unlike Shevkunov’s pravoslavie.ru, but the latter isn’t official, never forget that (it purveys the idiosyncratic views of Shevkunov and his allies in the Vorobyov Mafia). We don’t know yet what’s happening in the OCA, save that the Syosset apparat is trying to pull a fast one, but the power lies in the parishes, not the apparat (as Mollard’s election proved to all comers… Dahulich was the fave of the apparat and SVS). It’s much too confused and in flux for anyone to issue a coherent opinion. “Hank Leaf’s” piece was an utterly preposterous piece of folly that the author should never have posted.

The same is true of any posting on the Ukraine. Everything that I get is contradictory and confusing, save that all sources agree that the junta is floundering and can’t deliver basic goods and services to the people. Simply reflect on the fact that the Americans arrogantly installed foreigners into the junta apparat. It had the usual response… the people don’t have faith in a “government” that sets foreigners to rule over them. “The Ukraine isn’t dead yet”… but it soon shall be, but no one knows the time nor the circumstances of its fall. I only pray that it comes quickly, to spare all the innocents in the notional “Ukraine”.

Let these two stories “ripen”… I fear that the dénouement won’t be long in arriving…

Update 10 April 2016:

I got this from a Cabinet member:

One small item. Hank didn’t write the piece. He posted it on the Forum, but George Michalopulos wrote it; it originally appeared on Michalopulos’ Monomakhos blog.

There… that sets the record straight… however, it still remains a drivelling piece of rubbish, and the fact that Michalopulos wrote it only reinforces its marginal status.

4 April 2016. Excuse My Silence on the Larger Church Situation…

01 Woman Thinking

______________________________

Quite a few Cabinet members have written me in the past week about the general Church situation here in the diaspora. I’m not ignoring you… I’m taking my time and thinking things over, as it appears to be a very big story developing. I’m going to post this week on it. I’ll say this, it looks to be the biggest thing since the autocephaly of the OCA in 1970, ergo, I’m taking my time in reacting. I’m not a superficial simpleton like Whiteford or Dreher…

I’ll say this… things may come to a head before the all-Orthodox Sobor planned for Crete. If so, it may derail the whole shebang. I need to find the right words…

27 March 2016. The Judases in the OCA Who Want to Sell Out to the Phanar Want to Stab the Rodina in the Back

______________________________

All of those who wish to turn the OCA over to the Phanar have connections to the EP, or to the American Establishment, or to the Uniates. Jillions was a paid minion of the Uniates… of the Galician Uniates, who support the Fascist aggression against Orthodox Socialist Novorossiya. Lyonyo is part of the CFR, a pro-US State Department organisation. Moriak and Dahulich are former ACROD, with deep ties to the Phanar apparat, both here in North America and in the Phanar itself. Dahulich is a quasi-Uniate with a graduate degree obtained under papist auspices. Maymon is a disobedient former AOCANA bishop, shitcanned by Saliba for refusing to go where ordered. Peterson is a HOOMie lover. Chad Hatfield is a former Episkie who accepted an “honorary degree” from his Episkie seminary alma mater AFTER converting to Orthodoxy. Mollard is a dweeb, chosen precisely for his bovine passivity… he’d go wherever he thought the majority was.

They want to turn the OCA into an obedient running dog of the Phanar, which means that the OCA would become the drooling Step n’ Fetchit of the US State Department… that means that it’d become the plaything of the Galician Uniates, who have a veto on much of the American policy towards Russia (as the Croats adversely affect decisions on Serbia, and Armenians and Greeks pressure policy on Turkey). OCA people may have to face a hard choice. They could stay with the OCA and become the enemies of their ancestral homeland, or they’d have to leave it and join the MP. I can’t make this decision. I won’t influence it. However, if you chose the Phanar, you’d choose allying yourselves with those who kill our Orthodox coreligionists in Novorossiya and Syria. Think on that, if you will…

Choose wisely… it’s the most momentous choice facing most of us in our lifetimes…

One last thing… Potapov was the running dog of the Galician Uniates at Radio Liberty. Are he and Fatso conspiring to join parts of the ROCOR to the Phanar, too? It’s a possibility…

24 March 2016. Here’s Why Trump Supporters are Hypocritical Asshats

______________________________

Look at these two chits. The top one is from Bernie supporters… the bottom one is from Trump backers (note how the original poster put the rightie nutters “on the bottom”). Trump backers are greedy asshats… just like their candidate. Donald Trump didn’t earn a penny of his “wealth”… he inherited it all from his amoral buccaneer father… it looks like Donald inherited more than just money from his old man. If like calls unto like, what does this tell us about Trump? It certainly speaks volumes for his backers… do note that Trump backers are calling it “fake”. I think not… for they’re people who believe in demonising the poor and glorifying the rich. Let’s not forget… “the love of money is the root of all evil”. Often, such people call themselves “Christian”… they lie, in the most egregious and disgusting fashion… God will NOT be mocked…

#Feel the Bern… hey, Orthodox people… here’s a name of one of the Trump backers… Jonathan Ivanoff… does that mean that the OCA apparat is behind the Donald? Again, if “like calls unto like”, and Donald is a lying phony, what does tell us about Mr Ivanoff and the OCA apparat? Connect the dots…
